About installing gcc4mbed

I think I already installed gcc4mbed to my mac pc according to this web site "https://github.com/adamgreen/gcc4mbed#quick-start"

And also I installed CDT GNU Cross Development Tools from eclipse's install new software page.

But I have two different situation. First one, in Toolchain for Indexer Settings , I couldnt see ARM Mac OS X GCC (Sourcery G++ Lite)

second one about Build (Incremental Build) from all to all deploy GCC4MBED_TYPE=Debug I couldnt see this item GCC4MBED_TYPE=Debug.

I couldnt be sure about I installed gcc4mbed correctly. How can I be sure about that ?

Hello Kagan,

When you installed gcc4mbed it should have automatically done a clean build and would have generated an error if anything had gone wrong. The install process should have created a mac_install.log in the root gcc4mbed subdirectory. You could check it for any errors.

The install process also generates a BuildShell script in the gcc4mbed subdirectory. If you run that script then you will have a Terminal window that is able to build the gcc4mbed samples. With this terminal you should be able to go into the samples directory and issue a make clean-all all to build all of the sources again to make sure that it is able to successfully build things outside of Eclipse.

Even though I helped document the steps to install Eclipse, I don't have much experience with it myself.

I hope that helps,


Hi Adam,

I have the same problem as Kagan but i believe that the environment variables have not been set correctly as the directory I have installed gcc4mbed does not appear under the PATH environment variable. Is this correct?

Even I am facing the same issue as Kagan. It does not work from the terminal either :( @Kagan - were you able to solve it ?

Hello Harsh, what have you tried from the Terminal and what errors did you receive?

Harsh what did you do to fix this? I don't think the environment variables have been set correctly. I have maded path include the gcc4mbed directory but still no luck.
